Woke up with Jelly Bean of blood covering my tooth
Hi i'm 27 male. Today is Friday, and i went for a dental cleaning on Tuesday. Since i had alot of tartar, this time it was a bit harder than usual. the dooctor had to go in a bit deeper on the bottom teeth.
So i've been bleeding ever sense. I'm n ot even brushing my teeth that much cause i'm bleeding pretty much and it doesn't seem to stop, so i don't want to aggrevate the gums more. . then the blood clots and it gets hard...covers one of my teeth , it's sticky and i have to remove it.. but the blood keeps coming out.
So today i woke up at 5 am and i had like a jelly bean of blood that formed around my tooth...plus my mouth seemed full of Purple( which was the blood dried)and i was driping saliva mixed with blood out of my mouth. I felt this big jelly bean on my tooth so i went to the bathroom and sure it was that.
So i removed it( pretty scary disgusting feeling to do that) but my gums are still bleeding i think.
I'm sure they will stop bleeding as they heal , i even called the dentist yesterday( on his home phone cause his office was closed on Thanksgiving), and he told me to rinse and use tea bags to try to stop the blood. I did but it didn't really help.. Or i don't know exactly how to do it.
Anyways, is this much bleeding common when you have gingivitis and you have a somewhat deep cleaning?
